My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I’m really starting to get into the Women’s Murder Club series now. I’ve read enough of the books to figure out how the interpersonal relationships work between the women (even the new one).
Some things about this particular book in the series:
1. I’m am super happy that so far the “kill off a women, replace her” theme has NOT been continued (yet). It’s a trope that would get very tiring, very quickly. However, I see how it made sense to the plot of the previous book.
2. I’m not sure if I like the two(three?) distinctly different crimes that did not overlap at all. One was introduced immediately, the other a little after. The immediate one finished roughly two-thirds through the book and the other one took over (and wasn’t completely settled until the epilogue).
3. Some part of me knew the prime suspect was just an asshole.
I’ll have to leave my thoughts there otherwise I’ll start spoiling the book, but I think you get the picture. I did really enjoy reading it, and stayed up one night trying to get to the bottom of the first crime. I’ll be reading more!
